WE WILL NEVER FORGET















Those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001,
were remembered Friday around the nation. Here in
Calhoun County, Blountstown Fire Chief Ben Hall had
some help from his little girl, Anna Jo, as he raised
the flag in Magnolia Square and placed it at half-staff.
They are pictured at left saluting the raised flag in a
moment of remembrance, along with Blountstown
Police Chief Glenn Kimbrel and officers Darryl Temple,
Warren Tanner, and Fred Tanner. Above, Judge Kevin
Grover does a reading during a lunchtime ceremony
outside the Calhoun County Courthouse. American
Legion, VFW, and AM Vets joined in the event. Turn to

Reader urges local voters to


send message to Washington


To the Editor:
What can I do to send a
message to Washington?
If you, as I, have been
trying to keep up with
what's happening to our
country, then you must be
concerned. From my view-
point, I feel as if our securi-
ty is in jeopardy and we are
in for a'great change to our
.democracy.
Our financial secu-
rity is in jeopardy, with
our out of control deficit
spending. Borrowing our
way out of debt, living on
credit is a sure fire fail
state. Taxes that are and
will be growing out of con-
trol.
Our physical securi-
ty is in jeopardy. Not
protecting the victims, but
giving more aid and com-
fort to our enemies and
criminals. Restricting our
rights to protect ourselves.
SRestricting our troops to do
their jobs. Giving terrorists
the same rights that U.S.
citizens have.
Our moral and spiri-
tual security is in
jeopardy. Allowing
ACLU and other liberal
type organizations to
remove our religious foun-
dations from our country.
Taking prayer out of school,
In God we trust out of our
culture. The political cor-
rect that has been incorpo-
rated into our lives. There
is something seriously
wrong when politicians no
longer listen and/or protect
the citizens.
We must stop talking
among ourselves and take
whatever action we can to
send a message and help
stop the mad spending, tax-
ing, and re-designing of our
constitution.
Our little county can
stand up and set an exam-
ple to our state and coun-
try. We are known as a
democratic voting county
and region of the state
because the majority of our
voters are registered


democrats and only democ-
rats are elected officials.
But, if we are honest with
ourselves, we are only
democrats because of our
historical registration. If we
honestly registered the way
the majority of us feel, we
would no longer belong to
the Democratic Party.
Many have stated that
the Democratic Party has
left us. Well, maybe it's
time we leave them and
send Washington a message
the only way we can - by
changing our registration
away from the Democratic
Party. I'm not advocating
another party because,
quite frankly, the
Republican Party has to
return to it's principles,
also. But if we are carrying
a Democratic Party voter
registration card, then we
are endorsing what is hap-
pening to our country at
this time.
There are no checks and
balances in Washington.
The only chance we have is
to balance the corruption of
politics in Washington. If
one side has the advantage
then it's a runaway train to
socialism or fascism.
My dad, my son and I
represent three generations
of Democrats and we are
heading to the basement of
the courthouse this week to
change our registration,
joining hundreds of others
that have changed their
registration in the last sev-
eral weeks.
Collectively, our small
Southern county of
Democrats can make . a
large statement. If all that
are concerned about the
security of our country -
financial, physical, moral
and spiritual - we can show
the rest of Floridians and
citizens what a county can
do. CHANGE.
If we collectively, county
wide, Kinard, Clarksville,
Altha, Shelton's Corner,
etc., change our registra-
tion, what would the results

When an American flag becomes tattered and torn, there
is a proper way to dispose of it. A group of students at
Blountstown Middle School demonstrated this patriotic and

Never A Dull Moment

by J.K. Newsome



A scary tale of bats, men, and


the Charlie Brown happy dance


A few columns back, I
told of several encounters
with wild animals on Scotts
Ferry Road. At the end, I
made mention that my
buddy Jon might tell a lie
involving me" and a bat.
Well, I have been informed
it is not nice to call some-
one a liar, especially in a
newspaper, so in order to
come clean, I will just tell
you the story myself
because it is true.
One evening Jon and I
were coming home from
work in his 1971 F-100. It
was after dark, windows
down and the radio on. We
were going down the road
at say 50 mph. Unknown to
us, a bat was homed in on
some smaller flying critter,
let's just say a skeeter, and
was approaching us at a
right angle. I'm sure he was
already tasting the bug he
thought he would soon be
munching when, instead,
he flew right, through the
open passenger window of
Jon's truck, smacking an
unsuspecting me, up side
the head. Now I had no-
eye-deer what ' just
smacked me, but I did
know it fell to the floor-
board between my feet and
was screeching something
horrible. (What do you call
a deer with no eyes???? No
eye deer. What do you call
a deer with no eyes that
can't move??? Still, no eye
deer.)
The dazed and still hun-
gry bat proceeded to
climb/fly up my body and
attached itself to my face
which was just in front of
the brain that did not know
yet what was perched
-there, beating each side of
my head with its wings.
I managed to turn my
head towards Jon to see if
he was going to help me.
Turns out, he was fiddling
with the radio as if that hor-
rible sound was coming
from it! I was afraid to try
and grab the attacking
beast for fear of escalating
its attack, like the bee that
doesn't bite till slapped. At
this point, I felt the brakes
being applied, Jon was


LL


finally going to help me, or
so I thought. Ex-buddy Jon
later confessed to me that
he did see the thing
attached to my face and
was going to slow down
enough to JUMP OUT
before it finished me off and
went for him!!
The bat suddenly
released me and just flew
out the window. The whole'
thing didn't last 15 seconds,
and I could not find, a,
scratch on me.
Now, why would I tell
you Jon would lie' like a
rug?? Jon's version of the
story differs somewhat
from the truth. I will leave
it at this, his telling leads
one to believe it was more
of a, let's just say a roman-
tic encounter, between me
and the bat.
However, due to the
power of the keyboard, I
get the last laugh, because I
have a favorite Jon story to
tell. Warning: if you have to
go potty, do it now, this tale
has been known to make
folks wet their pants.
Jon and I worked
together several years at a
auto repair shop. Jon had
drawn a work order that
involved a strange noise
(let's say, like a bat
screech) that only occurred
just after the engine fired
up, but only lasted a sec-
ond. He had checked all
the usual suspects but
couldn't tell from the dri-
ver's seat. He asked me to
help him out by sitting in
the car and repeatedly
starting it while he looked
for the culprit, starting his
investigation at the left side
and working around, lean-
ing over the fender and
pointing his good ear at the


motor (remember that
position, it's key to the
pants wetting part).
The noise was a bit
annoying inside the car, but
consistently short. Working
his way around the engine
bay, he got to the right
fender. I lost sight of him,
but continued my key turn-
ing. By now he had made
his way to where the hood
meets the fender on the
passenger side. I turned the
ignition on one last time.
Suddenly Jon let out a sort
of...yelp. I killed the engine
with the key, but did not
switch it all the way off,
leaped from the seat, ran
around the front of the car
to see what had happened.
This is one of those
times when I wish I could
pull out one of those "worth
a thousand words" type
pictures, because painting
what I saw next with words
is difficult.
I am looking at a 250
pound man doing only what
can be described as a
dance, in one spot. Up on
his tippy toes, arms out and
flappin like he is trying to
take flight, head back look-
ing as skyward as humanly
possible, while sorta jogging
in place. Think of Snoopy
doing his happy dance on a
Charlie Brown TV special.
It stopped me in my tracks.
That's when I saw it,
and immediately knew
what had happened.
Remember the posture I
told you to remember, Jon
leaning over the car, head
cocked with his good ear
outstretched?? In this posi-
tion, he did not see the
electric antenna rise from
the fender but...he felt it go
up his right nostril. By the
time he realized what was
happening, all he could do
was make himself as tall as
possible. Go ahead, take a
moment to soak that men-
tal image in.
Had the man been as
much as 1 inch shorter, he
would not have been tall
enough to avoid severe
nasal redecoration. I think

Calhoun County Assistant
Supervisor of Elections


Have you moved but
haven't updated your voter
registration record? Or are
you registered to vote in
Calhoun County but
haven't voted in a few
years? If so, the Calhoun
County Supervisor of
Elections Office is looking
for you.
"Don't be alarmed,"
says Elections Supervisor
Margie Laramore, "we're
just updating our voter reg-
istration list, which the
state requires us to do
every two years."
Laramore said that her
office has recently complet-
ed a project to match the
addresses on the voter reg-
istration rolls- with a list
provided by the U.S. Postal
Service. Over the next cou-
ple of weeks, voters on ther
list whose addresses have
changed will receive a yel-
low "address change
notice" card in the mail,
which includes a pread-
dressed, postage-prepaid
return form to allow the
voter to conveniently fix
any incorrect information
and mail it back.
The supervisor's office is
sending out a second mail-
ing of cards called "address
confirmation final notices,"
which are green in color
and also contain a pread-
dressed, postage-prepaid
return form. The address

has received undeliverable

various other reasons.
"The green final notices

low ones," explains

Stoltzfus' latest documentary


"Big Cypress Swamp" debuts

"Big Cypress Swamp: the Western Everglades" debuted before a local crowd at The
Callahan Restaurant in Blountstown Thursday night. The latest work of Calhoun
County filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus, this documentary has been described as "a visual
masterpiece that tells the story of Florida's river of grass, highlighting people who
share their passion for this wild place, seasons of scenery that pull you into the beat-
ing of the swamp, and.a chorus of nature sounds melded into a musical score." The
work of fine-art photographer Clyde Butcher and musician Sammy Tedder are also
featured. The film has already garnered several awards and is currently airing on PBS.
Stoltzfus is shown above addressing the crowd at The Callahan and below during
filming in the swamp. He said the alligators and snakes weren't the scariest part of
working in the water...it was the lightning storms!


may no longer reside,"
Laramore says, "but if the
card gets delivered to the
current resident - not the
voter - the current resident
can help us tremendously
by simply writing 'return to
sender, addressee
unknown' on the postage-
prepaid card and just drop-
ping it back into the mail."
Members of thd military
or the Merchant Marine
and their dependents, per-
sons currently living out-
side the United States who
are eligible to vote in
Florida, and college stu-
dents are entitled to main-
tain an out-of-county mail-
ing address and continue to
vote in Calhoun County.
"I encourage our mili-
tary and student voters to
contact us to verify that we
have a current mailing
address and an up-to-date
absentee ballot request,"
said Laramore. "Anytime
you move, you should con-
sider your voting rights first
and contact the Elections
Office with your new
address.
"It's never too soon to
begin preparing for next
year's elections," she
added, and invites anyone
who wants to update an
address or who has ques-
tions to call her office at
(850) 674-8568.

Lady Tigers kick off homecoming

BY KELLI P. DUNN

The Bloiintstown Lady
Tigers split two matches
last week, falling to Sneads
on a road trip Tuesday,
then defeating Holmes
County at home on
Thursday.
The Tigers came out
fighting against the Lady
Pirates, but fell short in the
end. Scores were 27-25,
18-25, 25-23, 18-25, 9-15.
"It was a hard fought
battle - this is a district
rival," says Coach Tanya
Durham. "The girls played
hard. We had good setting
for Selena Williams and
Brittany Griffin with 11
kills. Sierra Chason had an
outstanding defensive night
with 20 digs. It was a pret-
ty even serving game for
most of the girls."
In addition to 11 kills,
Griffin had one block, three
assists, and a dig: Williams
had three kills, two blocks,
15 assists, and four digs.
Chelsea Baker had one kill

A Parallax

View
By
Paul F. Joyner, Ph.D

A parallaxx" is an apparent change caused by a change
in the position of the observer.
That being said, let me say to you, it is frequently diffi-
cult to tell what God is doing in our lives. The meaning is
often obscured. But in looking back, most people will
admit that even when it was difficult to tell, God was at
work in their lives.
When we stop to consider what God HAS done, there
is reason to trust Him for what He is doing and will yet do.
This being true, you and I can resign as self-appointed
managers of the world. Therefore, the weight of the world
is lifted from us. We are not responsible for everything
after all. There is a God who governs. And, incredible as
it sounds, he is quite capable of running the world without
you and me. Even more thrilling is the fact that He wants
to govern your sphere of life. ' . I
There are those who say, "I'm not going to worry about
anything. I am just going to let God do it all." These are
fatalists who have found a spiritual sounding cop-out.
Others say, "I can handle it all by myself." These human-
ists have left God out. Paul's view was a balanced one. "I
can do all things through Christ which strengthens me."
Note "I...through Christ." Human availability plus divine
ability, achieves what is an impossibility.
When we get in the position to have the right VIEW
things look so much different.
I had a friend who played for an NFL team. He had no
difficulty getting psyched up to play the team's natural
rival. After a few years, he was traded to that rival team.
His entire opinion regarding that rivalry changed. He saw
it from a different point of view.
It all depends on the view.
Two soldiers were in the same military compound.
Charlie asked Joe, "How long are you in for?" Joe replied,
"Three days, how about you Charlie?" Charlie respond-
ed, "One year. What did you do, Joe?" Joe responded, "I
shot the captain.." Charlie irately came back, "I went
AWOL for a week and got one. That is not fair, WHY? Joe
answered, "They are going to execute me in 3 days." You
see, he was looking at the good - 3 days to live. We cannot
determine what happens to us. We can always determine
what it does to us and how we will react.
How we look at life depends upon our "point of view."

USDA announces new conservation


stewardship program, cutoff Sept. 30


The'U.S. Department of
Agriculture's (USDA)
Natural Resources
Conservation Service
(NRCS) in Florida began
continuous sign-up for the
new Conservation
Stewardship Program
(CSP) on August 10th with
the first signup period cut-
off scheduled for
September 30. CSP is a
voluntary program that
encourages agricultural and
forestry producers to main-
tain existing conservation
activities and adopt addi-
tional ones on their opera-
tions.
Congress renamed and
revamped the former
Conservation Security
* Program in the Food,
Conservation, and Energy
Act of 2008 (2008 Farm
Bill), to improve its avail-
ability and appeal to agri-
* cultural and forestry pro-
ducers. Eligible lands
include cropland, grass-


land, prairie, improved
pastureland, rangeland,
non-industrial private
forestland-a new land use
for the program-and agri-
cultural land under the
jurisdiction of an Indian
tribe. Eligible applicants
may include individual
landowners, legal entities,
and Indian tribes.
Agricultural and forestry
producers must submit
applications by Sept. 30 to,
be considered for funding in
the first ranking period.
. To apply for the newly
revamped CSP, potential
participants will be encour-
aged to use a self-screening
checklist first to determine
whether the new program
is suitable for them or their
operation. It will be avail-
able on NRCS Web sites
and at NRCS field offices.
After self-screening, the
producer's current and pro-
posed conservation prac-
tices are entered in the con-


servation measurement
tool (CMT). This tool esti-
mates the level of environ-
mental performance to be
achieved by a producer
implementing and main-
taining conservation activi-
ty. The conservation per-
formance estimated by the
CMT will be used to rank
applications. States will
determine their own priori-
ty resource concerns, one of
the criteria that will be
used to rank applications.
States will establish rank-
ing pools to rank applica-
tions with similar resource
concerns.
NRCS field staff also
will conduct on-site field
verifications of applicants'
information obtained from
the CMT. Once the poten-
tial participant has been
field verified and approved
for funding, he or she must
develop a conservation
stewardship plan.

HEAD COACH GREG JORDAN


* The Tigers had our open'
week of the 2009 season
this past Friday. We had a
good week of practice and
got, a lot of fundamental
work in during practice. We
were able to work on things
that, during the course of a
regular game week, we usu-
ally are not able to do.
This week we begin our
preparation for Chipley. It
will be Chipley's first home
game- of the season under
the direction of new head
coach Rob Armstrong. Rob
was the head coach at
Marianna the last two sea-
sons before taking the
Chipley job this past sum-
mer. Chipley will have a dif-
ferent look both offensively
and defensively under their


-new coach. Offensively, they
will be a Wing T team that
will concentrate on the run
with some play action pass-
ing. Defensively, they are
still trying to find what they
do best. They will change
schemes from an 8 man
front to a 4 deep scheme
with seven defenders in the
box. Our offensive lineman
will have a tough challenge
this week in both blocking
assignment and scheme
recognition. Bottom line we
will have to control the line
of scrimmage on both sides
of the ball in order to control
the game.
This will be our first regu-
lar season road trip of the
season for this group of
Tigers. We need your sup-
port in the stands as we try
to improve to 2-0 on the


season. The kickoff is set for
7:00 at Chipley this Friday
night. Hope to see you at the
game.
Also, the JV Tigers have
their first and only home
game of the 2009 season
this Thursday vs. Liberty
County. The JV Tigers are 0-
1 on the year after a tough
14-8 loss at Bristol last
Thursday night. The JV
schedule had to be changed
after three of the six schools
we had scheduled dropped
their JV programs this sea-
son. Two of the three teams
that dropped were home
games.

MIDDLE SCHOOL NEWS


BMS teacher

Shannon Romer

awarded $2000

ING Unsung

Heroes Grant

A ceremony was held in
the Blountstown Middle
School gym Thursday
morning with teacher
Shannon Romer being pre-
sented a $2000 ING
Unsung Heroes Grant.
A representative of the
company was on hand for
the presentation and recog-
nized Romer as one of the
nation's most innovative
educators in the 2009 ING
Unsung Heroes awards
program. She was one of
100 winners who received a
$2,000 award to help fund
her "Changing the World -
One Molecule at a Time"
innovative idea and bring it
to life in the classroom. She
will now compete with
other winners for one of the
top three prizes - an addi-
tional $5,000, $10,000 or
$25,000.
"Changing the World -
One Molecule at a Time" is
a biotechnology program
created by Romer for the
students in her Intensive


Science Academy class at.
Blountstown Middle
School. The unique pro-
gram, which is the only one
of its kind in Calhoun
County, will provide stu-
dents with an opportunity
to explore fields and activi-
ties related to current sci-
entific advances. They will
study genetic engineering,
commercial biotechnology,
and forensic science by
transforming bacteria, par-
ticipating in a simulation
and creating a gene clone of
a medicinal rainforest
plant. In addition, the stu-
dents will extract their own
DNA, separate and visual-
ize DNA fragments at a


"crime scene," and employ
DNA profiling. The pro-
gram will not only benefit
the 25 students in the class,
but the resources will also
be utilized by more than
100 additional science stu-
dents.

Romer, who resides in
Blountstown, hopes that
the program will prepare
students to live and com-
pete effectively and pros-
perously, open their eyes to
current events happening
around them, learn about
the types of scientific jobs
available, and inspire them
to enter the world of sci-
ence.


Coach Pitts chosen to be parade


grand marshall for homecoming


COACH DAVID PIUTS


A Grand Marshall
The Blountstown High
School faculty has selected
"Coach" David Earl Pitts
.as the 2009 Homecoming
,Parade Grand Marshall.
David Pitts attended
Blountstown schools, grad-
uating from BHS in 1962.
He was an outstanding high
school athlete who played
football and baseball all
four years of high school.
He played tackle on the
BHS Tiger football team,
.earning All-Conference
recognition and an athletic
scholarship to FSU during
'his senior year.
Following his college
graduation, David returned
to Blountstown with his
wife, Dyan Marshall Pitts.
'David began teaching at
*BHS where he spent the
next 42 years teaching and
coaching. In 1976 and
,1977, Coach Pitts led the
"Fighting Tigers" to the
only football state champi-
onships that our school has
earned!
Also, perhaps just as
memorable, Coach Pitts
taught a multitude of high
school students to drive as
the county Driver's
Education teacher! During
his career, David Pitts has
had a tremendous impact
on the young people of our
community and our world.
His legacy will not soon be
forgotten!
Coach Pitts retired last
school year and the BHS
teachers and students miss
his charm and charisma
everyday! Last spring, the
faculty and staff of
Blountstown High School
honored David Pitts with
an entertaining and treas-
ured retirement luncheon
at The Callahan
Restaurant. Now, in honor
of his service to our school
and community, we are
proud to announce that
David Earl Pitts in the


2009 Grand Marshall of
the Blountstown High
School Homecoming'
Parade!
The parade will be held
on Friday, September 25th,
beginning at 1 p.m. It will
leave BHS and travel to
BES and Parthenon
Healthcare Center. Then, it
will return to pass in front
of BHS then move down
Highway 71 to the intersec-
tion of Highway 20. It will
turn left and proceed to
Wakulla Bank where it will
then turn back to the left
and return to BHS. We
encourage everyone to
come out and view the
parade and pay tribute to
Coach David Pitts.


TERESA CURl.


Teacher Feature
by Samuel Hurtado
A teacher that we all
look up to, Mrs.
Curl... Perhaps one of the
tallest female teachers to
ever teach in the "History"
of BHS... standing at a
towering 5'11.
She was born on an
army base in Frankfurt,
Germany (that's pretty far
away). Since Mrs. Curl's
father was in the Army she
never lived in one place for
too long, but when she
turned 9 she was finally
able to settle down in
Altha, Florida, where she
graduated from Altha
School.
I asked her why she
wanted to be a teacher and
she simply said, "It's what
I've always wanted to do
since I was a kid." I was
curious to know why she
wanted to teach History,
Mrs.. Curl replied, "I read
the book Little House on
the Prairie and just wanted
to teach History ever since.
Mrs. Curl has taught for
19 years (which is longer


than most of us kids have
been alive). She also teach-

Calhoun County Adult School had 17 students complete the 2008-09 year with a high
school 'Qiploma/GED. Pictured above are five of the students who participated in the gradu-
ation ceremony. They include (from left) Crystal Gentry, Haley Bozeman, Tyler Knowles,
Kenisha Lynn, and Kathy Simmons. Numerous other students from the Calhoun County
Public Library's Literacy program also completed with a GED.

Haley Bozeman shares story of


her experience with Adult School


BY HALEY BOZEMAN

Seventeen students
recently graduated from
the Calhoun County Adult
School. Among them was
Haley Bozeman who spoke
at the graduation ceremo-
ny. The following is her
speech.
A great philosopher once
said, "Life is like a box of
chocolates, you never know
what you're gonna get." I
don't think Forrest Gump
even knew how true that
statement was.
I grew up the typical
teacher's kid. Always had
to do my homework, study
for the test, take the tough-
est classes. I made good
grades, strived for the best
test scores and was active
in all extra curricular activ-
ities.
Never once in a million
years did I ever think I
would be an Adult School
student. I never really
thought much about the
adult school at all. It .was
just a place where kids
went that couldn't cut it in
high school or wanted to
take the easy way out. As
much as I hate to admit this
about anything - I was
wrong!
Just after beginning my
senior year, I learned I was


going to have a baby. It
was a major shock, but I
could handle it. Other girls
had finished school with a
baby.
I had completed the first
semester of school and the
real major crisis hit. My
baby would be born with a
birth defect called gas-
troschesis that would
require surgery to repair
and at least a 5 week stay
in the neonatal intensive
care unit in Panama City.
What was I going to do?
Do I leave my sick baby to
go back to school? Drive
back and forth? Do I try to
take the GED? I didn't
want to lose my Bright
Futures Scholarship that I
had already qualified and
worked so hard for.

. Mrs. Waller, the
Guidance Counselor, sug-
gested the Adult School to
me. I could stay with
Natalie in the hospital, do
my work when I was able
and still get a regular diplo-
ma and keep my scholar-
ship. It was a gut wrench-
ing decision - no prom, no
Sr. trip, no Sr.-Faculty
Supper but, as Momma
would say, "I'd made my
bed...and I had to do what
was best for Natalie.
Mrs. Waller made a call,


then Ms. Hill and Mr.
Nobles helped with the
rest. They spent a lot of
time arranging for me to get
the credits I needed, even
my Spanish II that they
normally did not offer.
I wanted to speak to let
you know the importance of
the services provided at the
Adult School and to let
them know how grateful I
am for their help and con-
cern for me and Natalie.
Ms. Hill and Mr. Nobles,
You will .never know how
much I appreciate all you
did to help me. through a
very tough time.
I found out just how
important the Adult School
is. There are a lot of differ-
ent people there for a lot of
different reasons. Because
you're there doesn't mean
you're a loser, a drop-out,
and it doesn't mean you're
lazy. You never know what
brings people to where they
are and we should ever be
quick to judge.

What is the difference
between life and school? In
school you are taught a les-
son then given a test. In
life you are given a test that
teaches you a lesson. And
as Gump said, .you never
know what you're gonna
get! . .... , ..... - ..',

Chipola College nursing students


learning with human simulators


MARIANNA-The
Chipola College nursing
department has added
another member to their
growing family of human
patient simulators.
The birthing simulator
named Noelle can breathe,
bleed and talk just like a
real mother. The high tech
device is designed to help
students learn about the
challenges associated with
delivering babies by mak-
ing quick decisions in a
stressful environment.
Noelle is Chipola's
fourth human simulator in
the family which includes a
child, and male and female
adults.
All simulators can be
adjusted to suit the educa-
tion point of the student.
Medical issues and training


can be progressively
increased in difficulty as
students move through the
program.
Amy Samson, a Jackson
Hospital nurse and Chipola
adjunct instructor, is
responsible for the patient
simulator project. Samson
can control the patients'
vital signs and speech from
a remote location which is


equipped with cameras for
observing the students.
Funds for the latest sim-
ulator came from the
Chipola Regional
Workforce Development
Board.

ing the Chipola nursing
program, call 850-718-

A Unique Fieldtrip
By Autumn Cook
On Friday, September

a kind field trip to the

stones and then form a

who participated and stu-
dents discovered that histo-
ry is not just found in a text
book.

What do the wise voices
tell us about coping with the
passing of someone close?
What worked for them, as
real people who have gone
through this challenging
experience? What do the
experts and non-experts
recommend or advise?
This is something I ran
across that I thought was
pretty profound: "Grief never
ends, but it changes...It's a
passage, not a place to stay.
The sense of loss must give
way if we're to value the life
that was lived. Grief is not a
sign of weakness, nor a lack
of faith. It is the price of
love."
Grieving is a process that
takes time. If you're one
of the family members we
have served, we would like
you to know you are still in
our thoughts.
Remember and be grateful
for the one you lost.

Department received a tip
that Timothy Eugene
Bontrager, 47, would be
traveling to the area of
11th Street in Blountstown
from SR 71 North with
methamphetamine - or
chemicals to manufacture
the drug.
Inv. Mark Mallory of
the Calhoun County
Sheriff's Office joined Inv.
Partridge, along with BPD
Chief Glenn Kimbrel and
Ofc. Patrick Crawford in
the 11lth Street and Hwy.
71 area to watch for the
vehicle. Approximately 20
minutes later, they spotted
the suspect's truck
approaching and.initiated a
traffic stop on 11th Street.
S. Inv. Mallory and Ofc.
Crawford approached and
smelled burnt marijuana
emitting from the truck.
Bontrager consented to a
search of his person which
turned up four and a half
Xanax pills in his front
pants pocket for which he
said he did not have a pre-
scription. Bontrager gave
permission to search his
vehicle and investigators
discovered a small plastic
container of meth, a set of
digital scales and razor
blades, along with a pre-

The Blountstown Police
Department caught up
with a suspect last
Wednesday who was want-
ed on a warrant for sale of a
controlled substance within
1000 feet of a public school,
along with possession with
intent to sell.
Arrested was Quinton
Lemark Peterson who was

allegedly walked up to the
drivers side window and
sold the informant $40
worth of crack cocaine. The
entire transaction was cap-
tured on videotape and a
warrant was issued for
Peterson's arrest.
